Long Life Puja

The purpose of offering Long Life Puja is to make prayers for our teacher’s long life and to create the merit – positive karma – that we need to make that a reality.  Our wish is that Rinpoche lives for many, many years to come and has stable good health so that he can continue teaching – benefitting us and helping us transform our minds.  For this to be possible we need, from our side, the condition of having enough merit; that’s why offering Long Life Puja is important for us.

Rinpoche has always said the tsog is the most important part of a Long Life Puja, so we are planning to make the tsog offering huge and spectacular.

There is also a formal procession in which many traditional offerings and gifts will be presented to Rinpoche, such as a statue of one of the long life deities, a long life stupa, a set of monk’s robes, etc.
